Hive, one last DIY for old times’ sake? You may recall that I used brooches as numerous accents in my wedding, but for the sake of this post I used them specifically on our wedding cake and as part of my bouquet. Well, the wedding is several months past now and I was holding on to them for sentimental reasons—but have I mentioned how much I hate clutter? I was pondering whether I should get rid of them when I saw this amazing necklace on Pinterest…and it kinda dawned on me that it looked like my brooches, and inspiration struck!!! I’ll turn them into a personal, sentimental statement necklace! And thus, our DIY is born.
I decided to use these five brooches, the two from the cake and three from the bouquet. I started out by simply laying them out on my
horribly dirty windowsill with lots of natural light until I found an arrangement that I thought would work nicely.
